As my kids get older they have more specific requests for their birthday cakes.  For this one I had a request for sugar skulls.  I researched different styles online and sketched out a few ideas for Em to look at and this is her choice.  Around the bottom edge are actual mini sugar skulls I made with a silicone skull ice cube mold and decorated with buttercream.  Around the eyes are purple pearl decorating candies by SweetWorks.
